Do you love off-the-beaten-path restaurants and cafes like I do? Discovering a quaint new place just feels adventurous to me. One of my favorite places to lunch locally is Pickity Place in Mason, NH.
Pickity Place: “Since 1786 our quaint little red cottage has graced the hills of southern New Hampshire, seemingly untouched by time. The enchanting cottage was chosen by Elizabeth Orton Jones as the model for her illustrations in Little Red Riding Hood (Little Golden Books, 1948).
Today it is a mecca for gardeners, foodies and anyone looking for inspiration and relaxation. You will still find our hilltop hideaway at the end of the winding dirt road. Lighten your spirit as you step out of your world and into ours. Welcome to Pickity Place.”
Then there’s the beautiful English gardens and enormous ash trees on the property. Pickity Place holds a very special place in my heart and I hope you’ll get to visit one day.
So this past spring I visited the Black Forest Cafe in Amherst, NH for the first time. Lots of homemade sandwiches, breads and soups on the menu. And so many dessert cases! Jon and I were on a double lunch date with my brother and sister-in-law.
It was the first time we’d all gone out together since my brother got out of his wheel chair. A celebration of sorts. You may remember he had a terrible accident last fall, fell off a ladder, crushed a number of bones.
Had to have several reconstructive surgeries. So this was our big lunch out — and we splurged big time!
There’s something about those places with the dessert cases filled with the homemade pastries and cakes. You don’t sit in your seat to order dessert. You’re absolutely compelled to go up to that case. Check. It. All. Out. Make the agonizing decision.
And it’s pure torture when there are a million scrumptious looking desserts too. So my brother and I finally settled on sharing a large, “individual-sized” homemade chocolate cream pie….with Coffee Whipped Cream! (On the left above.)
Oh my word. So I’ve been thinking about that delicious pie and the creamy coffee whipped cream on top ever since. And that was months ago.
And then last week I was sitting and working at Starbucks, sipping on a chai tea latte grande, when it hit me. Starbucks Coffee Whipped Cream! That’s the ticket. This is where it’s at folks. The rich coffee flavor we love, infused into a creamy, dreamy whipped cream. And Starbucks instant coffee makes this recipe a breeze.
Cheers to the perfect summer topping for all our fave frozen summer drinks, pies, parfaits, puddings, cakes, ice cream, milk shakes and desserts!
So it’s end of the school year around here right now and seems we need a dessert every other day for all the sports and academic awards programs, graduation parties etc.
I whipped up this yummy parfait this afternoon in no time flat. Brownies, chocolate pudding and coffee whipped cream. The trifle bowl came home empty. Licked clean. Just sayin’.
